I saw a few polls of the same question with democrats and republicans, and decided to do a 3rd party one.

1964 Constitution Party candidate Joseph Lightburn. I do not know what he stood for or what he said, but how can you not agree that this is the finest campaign slogan ever thought of:



Yes, he knew how to use his name to the fullest. May this be said of us.

Gotta say, I'm a bit surprised by the votes so far. I didn't think I'd see so many fellow Debs fans. I also thought I'd see more TR fans. But hey, the thread is young.

Hard choice between Ross Perot and Ron Paul.  I voted Perot.

I love Debs, Weaver, and Teddy Roosevelt, but for the sake of giving the man a little love in this poll, I voted for Weaver.

The problem with free speech is that it’s hard, and self-censorship is the path of least resistance. But, once you learn to keep yourself from voicing unwelcome thoughts, you forget how to think them—how to think freely at all—and ideas perish at conception. Washiqur Rahman and Avijit Roy had more to fear than most of us, but they lived and died as free men.

It's a tough one, but probably Teddy followed by Perot or write-in Gary Johnson.

I knew I was forgetting someone. I should have put Gary as one of the options.

Wallace. Because I really like style of his speeches.

Red - the beautiful color of blood
Flowing like a stream
White - the color of bleaching bone
Lovely and obscene
Blue - the bruising color of flesh
Battered, ripped and torn
The colors of the flag of hate
Of violence and porn
What you see is what you get
You haven't see the bloody trail yet
I'm no patriot, just a hate-triot

Clearly, 1912 was the best election Smiley)

Though, of course, the Progressive party candidate came second that election. So, properly speaking TDR wasn't a third-party candidate at all - Taft was Smiley))
